FRANK ARMSTRONG -- Photographs -- About
Photo: Louie Despres
I have been photographing for more than 50 years. For the first decade and a half, I worked as a photojournalist working for the University of Texas, Austin mostly supplying illustrations for various in-house and national publications. I began my teaching career at UTAustin and later in workshops throughout the southwestern US. Currently I teach both digital and analog photography at Clark University in Worcester, MA. In 1979, I was awarded the Dobie-Paisano Fellowship for a portfolio of central Texas social landscapes. Moving to the east coast in the early 1980's, I continued to pursue my interest in the interaction between man and the landscape. For many years, I traveled once or twice a year to Big Bend National Park, and in 2001, my monograph, "ROCK, RIVER & THORN, The Big Bend of the Rio Grande"
was published by Scotia-Waterous, Canada. I have exhibited widely across the US, and am represented in a number of permanent collections including the University of Texas at Austin, Houston Museum of Fine Art, Worcester Art Museum, Amon Carter Museum of Western Art, and Museum of Modern Art.
